Back pain is known to be one of the leading associated causes of disability in the United States. Even though back pain can usually start as a minor muscle ache, discomfort and symptoms may quickly progress. Understanding the root cause of your symptoms at an early stage may prevent you from suffering from needing surgery in the future.


WHAT CAUSES BACK PAIN?


There are two types of pain associated with back pain; acute and chronic. Typically pain which does not last for more than six weeks is labeled as acute pain, while pain that lasts longer than 6 weeks may be chronic. Back pain can be caused by improper lifting, a fall, or car accident. It is highly recommended to see a doctor for diagnostic studies such as x-rays, MRI, and Ct-scan to further identify any issues with the spine. Conditions commonly associated with back pain include:


  • Herniated Disc
  • Bulging Disc
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Flat Foot
  • Leg Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Foot & ankle Pain

Diagnostic Options for Back Pain

At Denville Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center, your first initial appointment with us will include a full and thorough exam of the spine. Your strength and range of motion will be measured. To gain further details into the source of your pain, additional diagnostic tests may be required:


  • X-ray
  • CT or MRI scan
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) test


After identifying the root cause of your condition, a customized treatment plan will be created for you. This plan not only includes the recommended programs for pain relief and correction, it also incorporates your mental and wellness goals to aid in long term results.
